http://ubuntuforums.org – I have the latest version of Samba, latest Ubuntu build, and have enabled Samba and decided to share 2 folders from my home folder on the linux box. I chose to not allow guest access and to require a password to login. The shared folders do show up on my XP box, but when I click on them and it prompts me for a username and password, the login info entered doesn't work. It just keeps asking me over and over again for a username and password. I have looked everywhere in the forums, and I have changed my smb.conf file as follows under the "authentication" section.... security = user us (HowTos)
